    /var is 100% full. When I investigate:

    ------------------------------------------------------
    /var/spool using 2.2G
    /var/named using 1.1G
    /var/rvgolbalsoft using 1.1G
    /var/cpanel using 2.5G

    ---------------------------------------

    Which files or folders I can delete to free up space?

    I'm not familiar with this folder:

    /var/rvgolbalsoft

    What is this precisely being used for? You cannot move or remove contents in the other folders mentioned without impacting system services such as cPanel or exim.

    How many messages are in your exim queue? "exim -bpc"

    There were lot of email messages in queue so I attempted to delete all messages in queue and /var space reduced to 77%

    If /var/rvgolbalsoft is used for rvsitebuilder, is that something that can be moved to another location and symlinked? The other folders cannot, but I have no idea on rvsitebuilder's requirements.
